street recovering and economic indicators that the economy is picking up. in main street america people feel like their lives are not on the right track. the 401(k)s are worth 30% and 40% less than they were. they don't know what their kids' futures are like. the incumbents are not getting it done. this is not a democratic problem. it is incumbent. >> let's take a look at dodd. here he is, surprised me when i read the paper this morning. here is chris dodd explaining his departure from the big time. >> over the past 12 months i have managed four major pieces of legislation through the united states congress, served as chair and acting chair of two major senate committees placing me at the center of the two most important issues of our time, health care and reform of financial services. i lost a beloved sister in july and in august ted kennedy. i battled cancer over the summer and in the midst of all of this, found myself in the toughest political shape of my career. >> you know, todd harris, it is a weird, strange world when a guy like chris dodd has to leave politics because of poll nu
on that? >> i think, you know, he was very much in tune with, i think, america, americana, what was going on. he certainly knew who elvis presley was. i don't know whether he followed the career completely, but he understood his place in american culture. his importance. i think halederman understood that. obviously dwight chaffin who continued this whole thing, this would not have happened without dwight's foresight and vision. i think the president was aware of it. he didn't play the tunes at night. >> a question for jerry, i wanted to know if you had insight or details of the logistics of elvis leaving memphis, his first trip to washington, as far as, you know, it's mind-boggling to think that elvis gets on a plane in in memphis, comes to washington, if i was walking through the airport, i'd probably be standing there, staring, waiting for elvis to do or say smog, as far as him arriving in washington and checking into the hotel, did he tell you anything, anything happening, taxi ride, do you have any details? >> there was a couple of details. one was, you know, what ementioned earlier
in the working issues that are facing america to turn this economy around. and i think, keith, that's what the democrats are looking for right now. they're looking for a reenergized effort, because we've got to continue this force for change. >> some process questions here. you're not only senator dorgan's friend, but he discussed this vaguely with you and asked you how old you were and all these other little details. did you see this coming? >> i did not. i did not see it. because i've been down this road before. years ago, they asked me to consider running for governor. i didn't do that, obviously. this one comes at a position where, you know, would i consider it? i'm not considering it. right now, we don't even know who the competitor would be. i mean, we have an idea who it would be, but there's been no official announcement by either party. like i said, i'm not considering it. i'm flattered by it, but this is going to be a huge race. a big loss for the democrats to lose byron dorgan. >> absolutely. this is less true with dodd and more so with dorgan. that could easily be a republican
america's interests abroad, we can help allied overseas development efforts with our strategic objectives and national interest. onal interests. this will not be easy, but it will make our government work more effective, efficient, and enduring. we are already emphasizing this kind of coordination with our new food security initiative, which brings together the department of agriculture's expertise on agricultural research, usaid's expertise with extension services, the u.s. trade representative's efforts on agricultural trade, and the contributions of many other agencies. we know that attracting investment and expanding trade are critical development. so we're looking to coordinate the foreign assistance programs at usaid, mcc, and other agencies with the trade and investment initiatives of the ustr, the u.s. export-import bank, and the overseas private investment corporation. and we need to seek to build -- and we seek to build on the success of regional models of coordination like the africa growth and opportunity act. we need to ask hard questions about who should be doing what in the
to connect the dots in a way that would have prevented a known terrorist from boarding a plane for america and the steps we're going to take to prevent that from happening again. janet napolitano will discuss her review of aviation screening, technology and procedures. how that terrorist boarded that plane with explosives that could have killed nearly 300 innocent people, and how we'll strengthen aviation security going forward. today i want to just briefly summarize their conclusions and the steps that i've ordered to address them. in our ever-changer world, america's first line of defense is timely, accurate intelligence that is shared, integrated, analyzed, and acted upon quickly and effectively. that's what the intelligence reforms after the 9/11 attacks largely achieved. that's what our intelligence community does every day. but unfortunately, that's not what happened in the lead-up to christmas day. it's now clear that shortcongs occurred in three broad and compounding ways. first, although our intelligence community had learned a great deal about the al qaeda affiliate in yemen call

-boggling to america, who has no sense of history -- [laughter] -- that they would be obsessing about this bill. i have no doubt that this will be another pandora's box that will inevitably be opened. there will be millions of south koreans and north koreans holding property deeds for land in north korea. my mother-in-law was born in orchards, you know, a wealthy landowner, and she knows where she lived. i think this is going to be another difficult issue to resolve, and given that they have had 65 years to get it right with japan and have not gotten it right, that does not make me very optimistic that they will be able to resolve this in a quick or efficient manner. i do not think it will be able to have this blanket declaration of new claims to be taken. i do not think that will fly. they will have to find some way to accommodate and i do not know how they are going to do that at this point. add that to the list of headaches. >> time for one last question if any remain. there was one back here. >> i know it is a big topic, but in terms of the political culture that varies so vastly between north and

prevented a known terrorist from boarding a plane for america. and the steps we're going to take to prevent that from happening again. secretary of homeland security janet napolitano will discuss her review of aviation screening, technology, and how that bomber boarded a plane with 300 people. so today, i want to briefly summarize the discussions. in an ever-changing world, the first line of defense is timely, accurate intelligence, that is shared, integrated, analyzed, and acted upon quickly and effectively. that's what the intelligence reform largely after the 9/11 attacks do. and what they do every day. but rnt fortunate-- unfortunately, that's not what happened. first, although our intelligence community had learned a great deal about the al qaeda affiliate in gemmen, called al qaeda in the arabian peninsula, that we knew that they sought to strike the united states, and that they were recruiting operatives to do so, the intelligence community did not aggressively follow up on and prioritize particular streams of intelligence, related to a possible attack against the homeland. second, t
